Cafe Gitane


Two words: Avocado Toast.

On my recent trip to NYC Kelsey and I stumbled upon a cute little cafe to sit and have a snack. Who knew that this snack would become such a memorable taste bud erupting experience?

What I loved about the avocado toast, besides how amazingly delicious it was; Was that the flavors were simple enough to spot each one individually, making it easy to break down and recreate – which is exactly what I plan on doing. This is what it consisted of:

Whole Wheat Toast – Thick, not the flimsy kind!
Avocado
Fresh Squeezed Lemon
Olive Oil
Crushed Red Pepper Flakes

This is such a simple combination of flavors yet truly will rock your world. Either make this at home or go try it for yourself if you’re ever in the city.

Cafe Gitane – 242 Mott St., New York, NY 10012 (at Prince St)
